December 29, 2007: More photos from the farm…mother’s EARLY DAYS!

Mother riding one of her horses on the farm

Looks like a wintery day 🙂

Mother in front of grandmothers house…these flowers were there for years and years.  I can
remember them when I was growing up there.

Mother on the front steps of grandmothers house


Mother’s first few days on the farm!!!!!

Mother with her bathtub outside! 

Mother and her first highchair



The old farm house in the background.  I would imagine this would be my grandmothers

This looks like Dione?  See the big Oak Tree to the right in the background!

Deena with her "lunch box" for school.  They auctioned these boxes off and the boy who
big the highest got to eat lunch with the girl.  lol  I bet they would never do that today.

That would be me back in the 90s.

Suddenly before my eyes
Hues of indigo arise
With them how my spirit sighs
Paint the sky with stars

Only night will ever know
Why the heavens never show
All the dreams there are to know
Paint the sky with stars

Who has paced the midnight sky?
So a spirit has to fly
As the heavens seem so far
Now who will paint the midnight star?
Night has brought to those who sleep
Only dreams they cannot keep
I have legends in the deep
Paint the sky with stars

Who has paced the midnight sky?
So a spirit has to fly
As the heavens seem so far
Now who will paint the midnight star?
Place a name upon the night
One to set your heart alight
And to make the darkness bright
Paint the sky with stars.


Another snowy day on the farm – another one of mothers puppy dogs.  It must have snowed
a lot back then. 

Check out that old car in front of grandmothers old farm house.  🙂  Spiffy.



December 29, 2007: Waiting…

  I did sleep better last night.  The doctor gave me something to help me sleep!  So that is the good news.  I slept for once.  Sleep has been difficult since last Monday.  I think I am going to explode with excitement.  I need to find something to occupy my time.  If school was in session then I would have homework!  It isn’t though. 

  We may go to the bookstore tonight and look at some building books.  Pick out a few designs that we like.  I guess I shouldn’t put the horse before the cart.  But still…it is hard not to at this point!

  Chilly outside today.  No real weather to speak of.  Yesterday was cloudy.  Looks like a COLD week ahead.  We may dip down into the teens.  BRRRR

  It won’t be long until I will be back in CANADA!  I will be up there for at least a month.  SURELY IT WILL SNOW THERE!!!!


  So while I await news…I shall post some more photos 🙂 – from our family farm!

Mother with one of her dogs…you know that every photo I have of my mother she has a dog!
I think that is a pug????  🙂  Daisy???


Mother and her horses

Mother in front of grandmothers house – major ice storm!

Ice storm on the farm – Judy Dodson (mother)


My mother playing in the snow on the farm (yes it used to snow around here) Note yet
another dog 🙂

Mother – trying to find her puppy no doubt


Mother feeding the chickens on the farm

Mother riding her bike.  Ummm I see the training wheels!!!!

That would be ME – BEAU!  The big Oak Tree to the left of my shoulder.  It still stands!

Looks like hay ride on the farm. 


Mother with her friend Leah.  Leah was adopted by a local family.  They became lifelong
friends.  I believe Leah lives in the Southwest United States. 

My mother…grandmother and unsure on who the other lady is?  My grandmothers mother?
This is in front of my grandmothers old house on the farm.

Dione riding a horse.  Scary I know!

Grandmother with some horses/ponies on the farm. 

Looks like they are hauling corn in this photo…

Just so there is proof that I had a motorcycle when I was little!  This is Dione on my bike!
Daddy helping her ride it.  Course she could never ride it as good as her big brother!

Dione on the farm…prob 3 years old???  Don’t let her charming looks fool you.  I am sure
she was up to something.

Dione stealing my easter eggs…OK well maybe she found those but I have my doubts.

Dione – hmmm too young for school?  Going to church maybe?  Looks like Deena there to
the right – obviously cut out of the photo for some reason.  Marsha Marsha Marsah…I mean
Dione Dione Dione 🙂  😉

OK, this is my cameo appearance.  I am the one with the cute butt.  Deena to the right.

First day of school it appears?  Maybe church?  Dione looks too young for school!  I am going
to guess church.  You can see the big Oak Tree to the left in the back!!!!  Still there.

That would be me 🙂  Mouse?  Frog?  lol

Going to school.  New lunch box.  Planet of the Apes?????
